Commercial Break: Kettering University

The following is a sponsored post. Please visit our sponsor's site to thank them for allowing us to make more contributions to children's organizations!
These days, more and more adults are choosing to go back to school, in order to improve their occupational outlooks for the future. But its really hard for adults to go through school... believe me, I know! When you also have to support yourself, and possibly also support a family, how do you balance work and school? And how do you guarantee that you're going to be successful in school, and that your education really will lead you to a better career?
Well, if you're interested in industrial engineering, then Kettering University's engineering co-op programs will be a good choice for you!

With the co-op program, you alter between three month periods of full time schooling, and three month periods of full time work at the occupation you're studying for. This way, you get to apply your knowledge as you learn it, and make a salary! It also gives you a chance to work with an established company, make valuable connections, and get lots of experience. So, once you do graduate, you're not just going to be going out into your new career as a newbie. You'll have been there, done that, and you'll have connections of your own!
Its also good to know that, in "America's Best Colleges Guide for 2008", US News and World Report ranks Kettering University as "the #1 University in the nation for Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering."
So if you're thinking of going back to school, and engineering is one of your interests, you'll definitely want to check this school out!
